2012 FOOTBALL SEASON TICKETS NOW ON SALE
New season tickets on sale; Paperless renewal campaign launches
TUCSON – Season tickets are now on sale for the 2012 Arizona football season. New season tickets are now available for purchase and the online renewal campaign is currently underway. The debut season of new head coach Rich Rodriguez features eight home games to be played at Arizona Stadium, including Oklahoma State, USC, Washington, and rival Arizona State.
New Season Tickets
Fans can now purchase new 2012 season tickets in full and select their seat location based on available inventory. Due to the construction of the new North End Zone project, a few changes regarding seat category and location have occurred. The family zone area is now located on the east side of Arizona Stadium in sections 201 through 203 and section 207. A new section of seats have been added to the south end zone. This new seating area features more leg room and contoured seats and backs. New season tickets can be purchased in person at the McKale Center Ticket Office, over the phone by calling 520-621-CATS, or online at the ArizonaWildcats.com football tickets page.
Beginning with this past men’s basketball season ticket renewal campaign, Arizona Athletics has gone green with paperless renewals. Season ticket holders will receive an e-mail notification with directions on how to renew online. In addition to being environmentally friendly, paperless renewals saves the department thousands of dollars in printing and mailing expenses. The response to paperless renewals from men’s basketball season ticket holders was outstanding and improved the timeliness of renewals. The renewal deadline is May 1. The McKale Center Ticket Office staff is available to help people with the online process either in person or over the phone (520-621-CATS).
A payment plan program has been established to give fans the opportunity to divide the cost of renewing season tickets into equal monthly installments. To participate in the payment plan program, season ticket holders simply select this option when renewing tickets online. The number of equal monthly installments is based on the date the payment plan form has been accepted. Credit cards are charged on the date the form has been accepted and on the first of the month until the renewal deadline (February 1, March 1, April 1, and May 1).
Early Renewal Incentives
Season ticket holders are encouraged to renew their season tickets early. Arizona Athletics is offering several incentives to entice early renewals. Season ticket holders who renew online prior to the early renewal deadline will have the $10 service fee waived and they will receive a $10 discount (based on a minimum order of $50) at BearDownShop.com, the official online store of the Arizona Wildcats. The early renewal deadline is February 29. In addition to these incentives, Arizona Athletics will be conducting a “30 prizes in 30 days” prize giveaway for renewed accounts from February 1 to March 1. Each day a prize will be given away to a season ticket holder who has renewed online. The earlier the renewal is received, the more chances the season ticket holder has to win. Prizes will be announced next week.
